woolfox lodge eh? ... is that in lincolnshire/leicestershire???

Am currently back @ my parents on my mini tour, and have just this second been looking on flash earth, @ a site up the road, known as "woolfox depot" up until about ten years ago, the warehouses were used as part of eddie stobarts haulage, and the land behind is owned by farmers..

From google earth, u can clearly see the shape and roads of an old airfield strip and concrete runway..

Driving past the site, you can also see out buildings that would have been associated with the airfield..

can this be woolfox lodge?? if so... i may have to take a look on up there tonight.
